Upcoming Horror Film Will Show You The Way To Eternal Life!

There's a new fang in town, and his name is Stephenson.

If you like vampires, and vampire movies - let's face it, who doesn't - then check out "The Gospel According To Stephenson."

Writer/director/friend-of-this-blog John Schuermann is taking a new approach to the vampire mythos with his upcoming horror/thriller/satire in which a purported vampire uses our current pop culture obsession with all-things-fanged (see The Strain, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Being Human, The Twilight Saga quadrilogy, True Blood, the 30 Days Of Night multimedia franchise, Anne Rice novels) to literally start a new religion based on "eternal life - guaranteed!"

The movie's website reveals the film is "as much a social satire as a horror film, features substantial social commentary and comedy elements, with science vs. religion and the conflict between the skeptic and the believer as its central themes."

Here is the website where you can view the proof of concept trailer:

Beginning September 14, the filmmakers start a fundraising campaign through Seed & Spark to raise (in an undead fashion, no doubt) capital for the movie. If you like smart, independent cinema, consider a worthwhile donation and get some cool swag in return. It's a win/win for everyone.
